What gear are you bringing?

This year's Cf is on a roll. What I would like to know from those who are coming is what gear are you bringing?

I have a decision to make. Either I'm bringing the KISS system with me or the entire SparkyII. What I have to offer is the following...


Simple rig.....
RG Pro 400 PS
Dodd MLP tube preamp
Jolida JD100 tube CDP
Denon 3910 SACDP
Music Hall MMF-5 TT w/ "THE Clamp"
Anthem1 tube amp [2]
Tyler Acoustic's Linbrook Signature Series speakers :D

Advanced rig.....
Same as above but with VMPS Larger sub
Velodyne SMS-1
Amp not chosen yet to power ^^^ sub

Also, I will be bringing the Nitty Gritty [50th Anniversary edition in the Jatoba finish] record cleaning machine along with an air compressor and a Shark steam cleaner for you vinyl lovers. What are you planning on bringing?

Wabbit, just place BillD on the roof. I'm sure he won't mind... :rolleyes:

No, a bong doesn't count. But bring it anyways. Someone will make a use for it, I'm sure.

Re: What gear are you bringing?

In that Rabbit is bringing my entire system (pretty much), I don't need to bring a thing. I'll bring an iPod and a laptop.

You can keep those in the cab but you'll still have to be tied to the tailgate....

Re: What gear are you bringing?

The way my wife packs for a 3 or 4 day vacation, I will be lucky if there is room for me, the driver. What are you guys driving, 18 wheelers? Or are just not bringing your wifes'? :-k I am hoping I have room for my 5 amps somewhere in the trunk. (75, two 55X's, a 45 (birthday present just bought for my son that is being refreshed at Rolland's) and an 806 (another recent purchase)

That just about sums it up for me. Oh yeah, maybe room for an MP3 I can carry in my pocket. :rolleyes:

Re: What gear are you bringing?

Don, I know of two of us will be bringing trailers that will be packed to the gills. Most of us that are bringing gear have the back of the car/truck/whatever weighed down pretty much to the tires themself. It doesn't matter how you or the gear gets here, just that both get here safe and without damage. Just keep in mind, the last 1/2 mile of the trip will include some rough riding and some severe angles to climb. The Google map does the terrain no justice whatsoever. You'll know when you get there.

I think we are gonna have to stock up on Gold pens this year...

Re: What gear are you bringing?

Tom,

I got a vague idea of the terrain when I saw an asterisk at the bottom description of WS#10 for no minivans. I was planning to take our full size conversion van, but after reading that, we will be planning on driving a car. Just glad there will be plenty of quality equipment there to listen to. \:D/

Re: What gear are you bringing?

OO, the last guy to bring a bike burnt up his clutch on the way up the last 1/2 mile stretch. It's up to you, I'm just sayin'....

We may be able to bring you up the "back way". That way, there will be no issues...
